The French manicure is an absolute classic. Your hands will look chic and well-groomed with this manicure. No wonder this look is so popular. You don’t have to go to a nail salon for this radiant look, because you can easily do a French manicure yourself! With the tips in this blog you can easily apply a French manicure yourself.
French manicure tip 1: this is how you create the perfect white border
There are different ways to apply the white nail border. For example, using the Herome Manicure Pen. Press the button at the bottom a few times and the white liquid comes up. The pointed tip allows you to draw a line very precisely. Follow the curve of your nail for a natural effect and the perfect half-moons as we are used to from the French manicure.
Don’t have a steady hand? We’ve got your back! Stick the Nail Stencils just below your nail edge. The next step is to put the special white nail polish from Herome over your nail edge. Put a little polish over the stencil, so that you get the entire nail edge well. For full coverage, apply two coats of the same white polish. Voilá… you have beautiful white nail edges! The perfect start for applying the French manicure yourself.
French manicure tip 2: choose a natural colour
Do you want to accentuate the colour of your nail bed? Or do you want a subtle shiny look? Then use one of the natural nail polish colours from Herome. You can choose from the colours: Pink, Salmon, Glitter or Glamorous Pearl. In addition to a radiant colour, this nail polish also strengthens your nails which prevents them from becoming weak or tearing. As a second step, apply the nail polish over the entire nail, including the white nail edge.
French manicure tip 3: enjoy the look longer with a top coat
After you have applied the perfect French manicure yourself, you obviously want to enjoy it for as long as possible! That is why we always recommend using a top coat. This nail polish protects the nails against scratches, dents and other minor damage. This way your nails will continue to shine!
